5 qualities of a good mother-in-law

It isn’t every day that you get to observe the traits of a great Mother in Law.

But when you do, the first thing to pursue is gratitude for the woman who’s been an inspiration.

After all, it doesn’t just take a daughter in law to bind a family. What is needed surely is an effort from all sides. Also lots of empathy and compassion.

While it would be unfair to label all mothers in law as bad women, it is very rare to come across mothers in law who are an inspiration.

Below I share with you 6 qualities of a good Mother in Law!

1. Evolved

An evolved mother in law is a woman who is secure and independent enough to not just accept a new member in her family but also respect her. She will be intellectually bright as an individual and will truly understand the meaning of starting a new life and having one’s own space.

She is the best kind of mother in law to have. If you have such a mother in law, you have surely hit the jackpot. An evolved mother in law is the best of the types of South African mothers-in-law.

2. Peacemaker

It is natural when two people share a space, sometimes there could be differences in opinions and ideologies mismatch. But here if your mother in law chooses to demean you then it will only ruin the peace and harmony of the house.

Instead, if you both respect each other’s opinions and even if she feels you are wrong, she can have a peaceful approach to make her daughter in law understand, which will not hurt her sentiments either.

3. Kind-hearted

No matter what she says to you if by the end of the day she does something to show her kindness she is absolutely unharmful. If you know she is kind deep down inside then she will protect you.

She may not show it all the time but is her kindness which keeps things going on between you two and it is certainly one of the best qualities of a good mother in law to cherish.

4.  Compassionate

A compassionate mother in law will be a woman filled with love, empathy, and affection for you. The fact that you are married to her son will be a matter of kindness for her. She will do every bit possible to make you her own.

She will make an effort to genuinely provide you with love like your own mother. Having a compassionate mother in law will keep you at peace and sane at all times.

5. Empath

What is that one thing we all want from our near and dear ones? The ability to understand our pain and stress? The ability to listen to us without being judgmental and biased.

So consider yourself blessed if you are among those very very few daughters in law if you have such a mother in law who can empathize with you.

6.  Considerate

Ok, so your mother in law might not be that perfect one, the one who loves you like your mother but if she considers your shortcomings and helps you in odd situations then it is not a bad quality at all.

One of the qualities of a good mother in law is that she considers you as a part of her family and supports you when you need her by your side, which is simply great.
